I’ve always seen the Quad Cities as an exquisite blend of culture. From the work done by various organizations, to the wonderful music that graces our town, and the multiple celebrations of culture, it makes me a proud Quad Cities native and local English Language Learner (ELL) teacher.

Argrow’s House of Healing and Hope is a safe space for women survivors of violence and abuse. Their services empower women to take the steps needed to protect themselves and move forward successfully.
